The gable end of the cottage on the W side of Millgate at its N end seems the most likely location for the FB but the stonework has holes and has lost a lot of mortar, maybe the FB too. UPDATE 2/2/17. A revisit to the village encouraged me to review the status with the help of old maps. The National Library of Scotland 6 inch 1950 map shows the relevant building with BM, and the building is still there on Old Maps 1956 1:10560 map. It was not on the cottage I refer to above. The relevant building is not shown on the 1976 1:2500 and is not on modern satellite views so it's definitely gone.

This short portion of Cliff Road is now known as Millgate, since the diversion of the main road along a more direct route on the other side of the cottage. But couldn't find the FB.

The only likely house has been rendered up to about 2 ft above ground level. No sign of the FB. Was already in the database as 'destroyed' so maybe I'm just confirming the obvious.
